The River Dee

This is another post following my recent post about our weekend away. I took so many photos over the weekend there would have been to much if I had put it all in one post! So this post today is about our day at the River Dee in Chester. I had heard people talking about it before but never visited.

After trouble finding a parking space, we finally found one. Once we arrived there was a band playing but we didn't take much noticed of the band. We headed of to get an ice cream as the girls wanted one. So we then all sat down for a bit before heading off onto one of the boats. My partners Aunty wanted to go on the boat called 'The Diana' and luckily it was the boat that was there when we arrived.

My partner didn't come on the boat with us so he went shopping instead and got a few swimming bits for the girls to go swimming in the hotel later on in the day when we arrived back to the hotel.

The girls really enjoyed the boat ride. The views were stunning. I regret not taking photos of the little huts and posh houses and holidays homes along the side of the river. They were amazing! I would love to own one. There were many families in speed and paddle boats along the river.

The boat ride lasted roughly 30 minutes. I was a little worried about how the girls would behave, especially Elliw! But they were well behaved. They really enjoyed themselves. When we arrived back, my partner met us. We headed off to the nearest café for a snack and a cup of tea. We didn't stay in long as the girls started playing up so me and my partner took them back out to the front.

The River Dee is a beautiful place. Again, a great place for photos.

  15. Lovely pics, I love going on boat trips but it's something I don't do very often. And thats a bit embarrasing seeing as I live by the sea, I should have no excuse! The girls look like they are having loads of fun :) #daysoutwithatoddler
